Valuing Families in Childrens Education – Podcast Episode 11 | Podcast Episode 11
Classnotes Podcast (April 20, 2007) The underlying assumptions we have about our students have a dramatic effect on our ability to teach. The same holds true among adults. Even with the best of intentions, educators struggle to work with families without realizing that their own deficit assumptions are creating the barriers. Aurelio Montemayor, M.Ed., director of the IDRA Texas Parent Information and Resource Center, illustrates the contrast between the valuing and deficit models of thinking and acting, and he provides examples of schools that are valuing families as partners in children’s education.
Aurelio is interviewed by Josie Danini Cortez, M.A., an IDRA senior education associate.
